Why can't I send an email from my device using my Google account ?

Some of you are using a gmail account to send emails from a device to their mail box (logs, events, pictures,...).

Since May 30, 2022, Google changed the way they handle security for your devices.


Please read the below article from Google support web site in order to understand why this happened and what to do now :

Less secure apps & your Google Account - Google Account Help

To help keep your account secure, from May 30, 2022, Google no longer supports the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password.

Important: This deadline does not apply to Google Workspace or Google Cloud Identity customers. The enforcement date for these customers will be announced on the Workspace blog at a later date.

For more information, continue to read.

If an app or site doesn’t meet our security standards, Google might block anyone who’s trying to sign in to your account from it. Less secure apps can make it easier for hackers to get in to your account, so blocking sign-ins from these apps helps keep your account safe.


How more secure apps help protect your account

When a third-party app meets our security standards, you can:

  • See what level of account access you’re giving the app before you connect your Google Account
  • Let the app access only a relevant part of your Google Account, like your email or calendar
  • Connect your Google Account to the app without exposing your password
  • Disconnect your Google Account from the app at any time

Learn more about third-party apps with access to your account.

An App password is a 16-digit passcode that gives a non-Google app or device permission to access your Google Account. Learn more about how to sign in using App Passwords.
